at one time or another in television. maybe one or two people. c-span: craig j. spence. we heard a lot about craig j. spence here in this town. i'm not sure the rest of the country did because it was a washington times story about his "escapades." where did you meet craig j. spence and who was he? >> guest: craig j. spence, when i met him in 1966, was a remarkable character. he was a young reporter for wcbs in new york city. and he was bright and funny and dapper. he affected the airs of a dandy in one moment and gen. macarthur the next. he was very well read. he was cultured. he was just the most entertaining character. lots of friends. things were always happening. a great vivid character. lots of energy. we met, as a matter of fact, in leonard bernstein's apartment. his wife, felicia montealegre at the time, was making anti-war christmas cards, which sounds silly now, of course, but people went to great lengths to be against the war in those days. it was a kind of harmless escapade. we were there covering it, and, of course, we were jockeying for position to interview everybody he a

traveled with craig fugate doing national services, the earthquake last year, they get it during an exercise environment, but how is that going to differ from reality? but it's permeating down to the local level now. and the next challenge is how do we cross that bridge to truly having community resiliency? how do we leverage faith-based and nongovernmental organizations to carry that message for local, state, and federal leaders? so, i think that's the next challenge going forward. but the messages being delivered from the top down, i think the next piece is how do you now move it horizontally across the community level. >> and in closing, i'm going to go down the panel and ask if there's any closing comments or points that you haven't had the opportunity to make. i think, you know, people are anxious to hear your thoughts on this particular program and on this mission because it is going to take all of us if the big one happens. so, if i can start with you, vice admiral beaman, if there is anything you'd like to impart, sir. >> actually, i have 37 things i'd like to talk about,
is familiar with what's called aid matrix, it's essentially the craig's list of donations. you have to have a sponsor and you have to set up a portal and there's some costs associated with that and we set up an aid matrix for van, turkey. we've been able to arrange for some supplies to get there. not near as much as i would like, but one of the big challenges is transportation. it takes a few extra days to get there and there's really no trucks to do it. we are going to go back, maybe this time in the summer rather than the winter. we keep in touch with what's happening there and we keep the portal there and we keep pushing. in the meantime we keep learning and we keep pushing and we never stop thinking about them. i think i'm going to end with that. thank you to the military and thank you to lewis.
